or set it up based on your loop calculations with the Config SW

Basic features not much.

 More advanced features- quite a lot 

2000 network zones instead of 1000, 200 network sectors instead of 50 more false alarm management, better logging, fully en54 compliant. Fully supports Apollo voice sounders to name a few. Still can’t share network zones though but still better than Kentec imho

I don’t think the pro 4 is being uodated any more either

For a start mx5 has 2000 zones and there is more in the menus and supports newer devices

Had a intermittent open circuit fault on previous system and it was a loose connection in loop siren that was on drywall and when the door of office was banged it would throw up a fault , never  a problem when no one was around , tightening connection , no fault since.

Turn EN54 off :)

But best feature is that "Disable all Outputs" works across the network and not just limited to the panel you're on .......  Biggrin

Easy enough to set up one of the function buttons for group disable on an mxpro 4 though it's a bit time consuming initially

But far nicer to have a function of the control panel do what it says on the tin than rely on the previous engineer adding the last sounder he added to the disablement group ..........
